Two Rockets Hit Coalition Forces Base In Northeastern Syria: CENTCOM

Thursday, 01/05/2023

The United States Central Command says two rockets have targeted coalition forces in northeastern Syria, a day after the 3rd anniversary of Qassem Soleimani's death.

In a statement on Wednesday, CENTCOM announced that two rockets hit coalition forces at Mission Support Site Conoco.

However, it did not give any further details about who was responsible for firing the rockets.

“The attack resulted in no injuries or damage to the base or coalition property,” the statement read, adding that the “Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) visited the rocket origin site and found a third unfired rocket.”

No individual or group has yet claimed responsibility for this attack, but Rami Abdul Rahman, Head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights emphasized that this happened one day after the third death anniversary of former IRGC Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani, saying “pro-Iranian groups” have launched the attack.

The Islamic Republic and its proxy militia groups provide military support to Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria.

After Qassem Soleimani was killed in a US attack in Baghdad, the top Iranian officials repeatedly threatened revenge for his death.

On January 3, 2020, the US military, on the order of President Donald Trump, killed Soleimani in a drone strike near Baghdad International Airport, saying that he had been "actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region."

Several hundred American soldiers are stationed in the north and east of Syria as part of the international coalition against ISIS.

In recent years, the coalition bases have been sporadically targeted by rockets or drones.
